    " I liked this book. It's a story about a group of old friends that gather for the weekend when their friend Jorg gets released from prison. I had not read anything by Schlink before, but I think he does a good job at group dynamics. "

    " A short but very complex story about a war criminal being released from prison to a party of friends adn family who may or may have not put him in jail to begin with. Boring at times, exciting in others, not as good as "the Reader". "

    " BORING....had a good premise but all it really was was arguing..got about half way and couldn't see it changing up any time soon. "

    " I so loved The Reader and I was hoping I'd enjoy this as much. But what I loved about The Reader (perfect writing, great story) was here just sort of depressing and weird. Don't bother with this one - "
